From Lipton

A perfectly sweet indulgence. Delicate vanilla blends beautifully with pieces of real caramel and the taste of rich chocolate truffles. Go ahead. You deserve it.

I didn’t know what to expect from this tea, but the bag sure had a pleasant scent. It really reminds me of a caramel latte from my coffee drinking days both in scent and flavor. (Without the coffee aftertaste, of course). There is a really intense caramel flavor to this tea with the vanilla towards the end of the sip. The black tea base is not noticeable…in fact, I had to look up what base it was supposed to have. Usually I want to be able to pick out the actual tea, but for this particular one on this particular day I’m okay with the black tea hiding out. I’m having this as my first tea of the day, but it would be equally delicious as a dessert tea. If I see this at the store, I would definitely pick this up.

I was surprised by this one too!!!

I know, a Lipton! I’ve been steering clear of the brand since I realized just how awful it usually is for me. But this was pretty awesome!

TeaEqualsBliss

There are a few others that aren’t bad lately from them too!

Backlogging: Been away from most of my other teas last week, resorted to buying some new bagged teas. This one impressed me the least. The black tea seemed to be buried under the flavorings, which while they were ok… I wished I had some Upton Creme Caramel, where the tea is an equal player. Weak overall, not bad…just lacking.

When I tried this one, it did taste pretty artificial. An exception to the product line—most of the Lipton pyramid bagged line is pretty good.

Cheryl

Will have to keep an open mind and try another one down the line then. Thanks : )

SimpliciTEA

I didn’t know Lipton did pyramid teabags. Do either of you know if the leaf in those bags is full?

Cheryl

The leaf is more “ground” like coffee, at least in this one (black tea). Their website shows 9 varieties.

I liked Black Pearl, and the Pineapple Chamomile is a really nice herbal.

SimpliciTEA

On the webpage given via the link, they use the words, ‘long-leaf’, and ‘long-cut’ but not ‘full-leaf’ to describe the tea. Interesting. Thanks for the link!

Cheryl

You’re welcome. In fairness, it was “only” $2.59 for 20 pyramid bags (on sale I think…whooping $2.99 if it wasn’t, lol).

Saw this at Walmart and my wife said if she can get the White Peach Mango I can get this one. I love my wife but I’m pretty sure I made the better choice. For two dollars a box you seriously can’t do much better. Smooth caramel vanilla or is it vanilla caramel taste? I don’t think either is overtly stronger than the other. A very good desert post dinner tea.

gmathis

Lipton’s series of pyramid-bag teas is pretty uniformly good.

ashmanra

I have had Black Pearl and it was pretty good. I haven’t tried the others yet.

The DJBooth

@gmathis I completely agree. @ashmanra Black Pearl is tasty as well as the Bavarian Berry and Blueberry Pomegranate White. White Peach and Mandarin Green just do not taste right to me.

I was going for quantity here and saw this and other Liptons on sale today so I jumped on the op. This isn’t something I would normally choose for myself, however, I wanted to broaden my horizons :) I must say I was pleasantly surprised. After steeping this smelled like those Werthers Candies or something. Again, not something I would normally go for. I thought it would be too sweet and caramelly (Oh! I made a new word!) but it wasn’t bad at all. It was actually a bit smooth. The coloring is that of a paler brown/black tea or brownish with reddish tint.

Found a box of this in my work locker and made a cup. Blech… It tasted like hot water with a touch of caramel. Just not that good.

This week, I have been enjoying starting the day with a dessert tea. I enjoy this tea with a little milk and sugar. It brings a smile to my face :)

I wish I had a One-Touch for my office. Because brewing by the cup isn’t fast enough right now.

Last bag I have of this. I probably won’t buy more.

Maybe they’ll make a half sized, half priced portable option…although not sure I would want a half sized option.

Jaime

Oh, if they make a mini One-Touch, I’m totally getting more than one. One for my desk, one for my parents’ place, one for travelling. That’d be absolutely amazing. A little two-cupper would be so cute.

Hmm brewed this for a quick tea so that I might possibly wake up a bit for work. At first taste, I thought…oh..this is oddly bland. But after a few sips I suprisingly sort of like it. Not overwhelmingly so, but it has a light pleasant vanilla taste. Not bad for bagged tea…

I got some of this in a trade with The DJ Booth because I wanted to know if it was worth buying. Short answer: No.

Long answer: My wife might end me if I try to keep this in the house. It was weak, but what I could taste was bitter and burnt. Blegh.
